TIFTON – Gov. Brian Kemp plans a visit to the Georgia Museum of Agriculture Friday, April 9.
The event is a kickoff for Georgia Cotton Medical Scrubs. Georgia-grown cotton is being used to create 100% cotton medical scrubs crafted entirely in the U.S.
The cotton for these scrubs, traced from the grower through completion, is spun into yarn at Parkdale Mills in Rabun Gap, according to a statement; the yarn is made into material at Hornwood in Lilesville, N.C., and the scrubs are cut and sewn at America Knits in Swainsboro, Ga.
The event is scheduled to begin 11 a.m. Friday at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture, 1392 Whiddon Mill Road.
